playing next (>>|) video manually did not solved problem, I must stop the video, go to the file list, and play any file to make video play normal again


I have the same issue as described above. This also happens, when you're only playing back a playlist (not necessarily "auto play" needed). Only stopping and restarting a video resolves the black screen.

it´s enaugh to change the resolution in Video Settings to resolve black screen!

This happens to me trying to play 2 videos in a row of the same resolution (480 anime)

Subtitles still play I just found out.


I am not 100% positive on this, but it seems Beta 6 fixed this issue.
